    Re: Your Team's #1 recruit

    SOUTHEASTERN LOUISIANA

    Too early to say. Our most impactful recruits in 2017 weren't signed until well after signing day (Marcus Cooper, Juwan Petit-Frere). That said, our recruiting coordinator loves Dante Carter (DT), Joshua Carr (LB), and Donniel Ward-Magee, and we have an FBS transfer QB (Chason Virgil, Fresno State) with 14 career starts under his belt ... we'll see who emerges.

    Re: Your Team's #1 recruit

    I hope Furman's #1 recruit from this class doesn't have to play a down next season… that in itself would be a huge win.

    My gut tells me… Hamp Sisson
    6-0 185 QB from Mountain Brook, AL

    Completed 321-of-485 passes for 5,845 yards and 43 touchdowns in his career...serving as a team captain, fashioned a stellar 2017 season, passing for 2,451 yards and 18 TDs, completing 131-of-198 passes (66.1%) in helping his squad to an 8-4 record and quarterfinal appearance in state playoffs...connected on 17 of 21 passes for 352 yards and two touchdowns and accounted for four touchdowns in all in a 51-50 win over rival Spain Park, completing the game winning two-point conversion pass to seal the verdict...named the Birmingham All-Over the Mountain Team and All-Over The Mountain Co-MVP in 2017...honorable mention al.com and AFCA 7A All-State selection.

    Player not to sleep on… Devin Abrams
    6-1 205 RB from Pensacola, FL

    Ran for over 1,500 yards his senior year in helping lead West Florida to to a 12-2 record and region and district championships...played on three district title squads....selected to play for the West Team in the Pensacola Sports Association in the Subway High School All-Star Series.

    Not much noise about Abrams but his film is impressive against top-knotch Florida talent.

    Re: Your Team's #1 recruit

    Illinois State Redbirds ... Had 33 total signees, 4 are Juco or FBS transfers. Pulled this off despite turning over 4 coaches on offense and 2 coaches on defense including both Coordinators.

    Got two guys we like a lot ...

    DB Michael Gardner, Safety, 5'11" 180 lbs from DeSoto, TX, 3 star ... "Offers have already rolled in from Indiana, Nevada, Illinois State, and Fresno State with teams like Baylor, Texas State, and Oklahoma State showing interest."

    https://www.hudl.com/video/3/6542349...57ee46d85f0252

    C/G Peter Bussone, 6'2", 285 lb ... but reportedly up to 305 lb since season, from our hometown of Normal, 2 star only, but really looks like an under the radar guy. Spack already thinking about moving him to DT. Very big, strong, no baby fat, good burst, high motor, finishes every play, and a mean streak. Note he plays in Illinois Class 7a, where 8a is largest. He's pancaking people on nearly every block.

    Re: Your Team's #1 recruit

    Lafayette is climbing out of a huge hole so everything looks good at this point. Perhaps the following three are the pick of the litter:

    Troy Fisher, 6'3" 215 QB from Pittsburgh Central Catholic, the school that produced Dan Marino and Marc Bulger. Some feel that Fisher will be the starter for 2018 and beyond.

    Malik Hamm, 6'3" 240 DE from Baltimore City College High School

    TayJon Martin, 5'11" 175 CB from Episcopal (Texas) High School

    There use to be a direct pipeline from FUMA to VMI, wonder what shut that one down? Shuman is still the head guy at FUMA, and he is a VMI grad. His son ended up at VT, but I doubt that had anything to do with it...he was one of the top ranked guards in the country, so he wasn't going to VMI...still wondering what happened there?
    I STILL HATE MARSHALL!

    I don't disagree with your assessment, but I think my guy is safety Dae'one Wilkins. http://www.hudl.com/profile/5506230/Daeone-Wilkins

    Even though he's 6' and nearly 200lbs, he's listed with sprinter speed. You watch his film, and he is impressive both in coverage and against the run. He takes off and sheds blockers and has the speed to cover a lot of ground quickly. That versatility, size, and speed is going to make him a tough hombre in a 3-4 scheme. He's fast enough to play safety and big enough to tangle up on the line of scrimmage.
    FU all the time.

    "It's not like we didn't know what was coming. We just couldn't stop them" -WCU head coach Kent Briggs

    "The game we know and love literally grew up in the Southern Conference. To find the foundation for ACC and SEC football, you have to go the league’s roots. To find an appreciation for a brand of football often-overlooked and seldom-appreciated, we as fans should do the same."

    Having a DL coach like Coach Davern Williams who he probably saw on The Last Chance U who turned good players into great players helped I'm sure.
